Another lawsuit filed in deadly Sherman bus crash

HOUSTON (AP) - The estate of one of 17 people killed on a trip to a religious festival has filed a lawsuit against the driver, owner and manufacturer of the bus that blew a tire and skidded off the highway.

The lawsuit filed late Monday in Harris County seeks unspecified damages, and is at least the second lawsuit stemming from the Aug. 8 crash in Sherman that injured the 38 other people on board.

The suit was filed on behalf of Cham Nguyen, a parishioner who was killed when the bus operated by Angel Tours crashed on its way to Missouri. Federal investigators say the bus had blown a tire that had been illegally refitted with new tread.

The passengers on the bus were members of a Vietnamese Catholic group.

Repeated attempts by The Associated Press to reach Angel de la Torre, owner of the bus company, have been unsuccessful .
